Sometimes I think I must live in a cave. I’m not into social media except for using Facebook to keep up with the extended family and the only time I go to YouTube is to watch a video of Caleb. Keith was playing a song last night by the Piano Guys and trying to explain them to me so I went to look at their website.
I spent half the night wearing headphones and watching their videos with this one being one of my favorites. check out the video after this one too … The same song but with Tyler Ward … I know WHO?? I’d never heard of him either.
Or at least it feels that way. A couple backings made since I got home but most of my time has been spent getting caught up from being gone. I always overestimate how much actual sewing time I’ll have when I have two trips close together.
Yesterday after running errands (walking several miles in 16 degree weather) I decided to kill two birds with one one stone. Chesty was a bit needy and since I’m going to be leaving him again, I spent the evening knitting…. I cast on a another cowl … This one a big chunky, warm one. It should be a quick knit too and ready to wear soon.
Doesn’t he look a little down?
My cowl is ‘beet’ colored but this is the pattern I’m using.
We arrived home last night late but safe and sound. Since the problem was the de-icer in the tail and the airport looked like this when we arrived, we were happy to get off the plane and back on another one without issues!
There’s a lot on today’s agenda – I have to get some things ready for mailing, I may or may not actually get to the post office today, catch up on email, sort through the mail and pay bills. I might even find time to work on the quilt on the design wall and/or load a top on the longarm. Lots to do before the next trip.
I hadn’t intended to participate in the class this year but a comment Paula left on my 365 post made me realize that it fit perfectly into my goal of a photo each day. I love that by signing up for this class once, I get to participate each year without paying again. The prompts arrive in my mailbox and I can choose to use them or not.
